A wide, low front spoiler lip, striking air intakes on the aerodynamic front end and behind the doors, and the air vent in front of the front lid, typical for 911s in the GT class, reflect the vehicle’s powerful performance credentials. The interior is dominated by red Alcantara, black leather and a carbon-weave finish as standard. A sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, full bucket seats, and the Clubsport package which includes roll cage and six-point driver seat belt as standard, enhance the ride experience for drivers and passengers further.Porsche 911 GT2 RS LaunchAlready featuring a lightweight, aluminium-steel composite construction, the Weissach package is available as an option, offering up to 30 kg weight saving for an even greater performance.Porsche 911 GT2 RSThe first 911 GT2 was developed in 1995 and was based on the 911 Turbo of the time. Subsequent generations followed in 2000 and 2007. In 2010, Porsche designed the first 911 GT2 RS to be an even more powerful and near-motorsport variant. All 911 GT2 vehicles have several things in common: turbo engines with significantly increased power, motorsport chassis, high-performance brakes, and rear-wheel drive as opposed to all-wheel drive.Porsche 911 GT2 RSPavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, said: “This is a great day for sports car fans in India. The 911 GT2 RS is the concentration of Porsche’s motorsport expertise into one high-performance model that also masters everyday driving. Despite its superior racing dynamics, this top 911 model is as predictable and reliable to handle as any other Porsche. We are seeing an increasing demand for true sports cars in India, and with vehicles like the 911 GT2 RS, we are confident Porsche is well placed to meet that demand and offer a truly unique driving experience on the road and the racetrack.”
